Commentators for the World Chess Championships

The Commentators has been decided for the World chess Championships. Thankfully it is going to be in English and by the following two well known chess players. Well maybe just one...
Lawrence Trent

He became popular after commenting in the recently concluded Candidates Tournament at London. It was an exciting tournoment with a very close finish and Lawrence was good in it.But he had a lot of guest commentators, wonder there would be any guest commentators here. Anyways, I watched the last couple of rounds in the Candidates and liked the way in which the Lawrence went about it, not to mention his accent probably adds some color to the commenting as well.
Susan Polgar

Susan is probably the brains in this duo. Anyone who reads her blog like I do will understand her talent of analysing complicated lines and the human element involved in it rather than just watching the chess engine to commentate on the game which novices like us would like to do. She is a true GM who can understand the moves which are difficult to identify over the board and can provide some insight on the psychological aspect of the game.
Both of them are going to be at my hometown Chennai for the match. Cant wait for it.

Best Kulfi ever

I had my best Kulfi @ Kebab Factory. It had a tinge of Elaichi and Pan taste.

Books on Business Models and Innovation

Though i could kill some time along with learning innovation skills with these books. They are short and easy to read - with some really nice Indian case studies like Godrej etc.
